BLOOD PRESSURE:

Blood Pressure is a measure of the force of blood against the artery walls as it circulates through the body. The pressure in the blood vessels when the heart beats is called the systolic blood pressure and the pressure when the heart rests is the diastolic blood pressure. Blood pressure is measured by wrapping an inflatable cuff with a pressure gauge around your arm to squeeze the blood vessels.
